Hello! Welcome to Assemble Papers Audience Survey 2020, running from Friday 15 May until Friday 5 June 2020.
I’m Sophie, the new editor at Assemble Papers. We think this is a good moment for reflection, and we really value your opinion. With this survey we hope to gather some feedback on your level of interaction with Assemble Papers, past and present, and how you feel about our stories and themes. We would also love some input on our future, and what you would like to see more from us. Your answers are private, will not be shared, and will only be viewed in aggregate. It should only take around 10 minutes, and your feedback will really help us shape the future vision for Assemble Papers. Thank you!
We love supporting local businesses, so as a thank you for taking the time to complete our survey, you have the option to go into the draw to win a few very special prizes from:
Everyday Coffee is a Melbourne-based coffee roastery and café committed to serving consistently outstanding coffee, everyday. They are committed to cherry picking the top roasts and blends and ensuring they are ethically sourced. More on Everyday Coffee here.
Readings is an independent retailer of books, music and film, with seven shops operating in Melbourne. They also run a lively website where you can purchase a range of titles online. Their shops have long been at the centre of the local literary scene, as a meeting place and event space.
As a cornerstone of the Australian literary landscape, Readings takes seriously its role in growing and sustaining local industries. 10% of their annual profits go towards The Readings Foundation, which was established by managing director Mark Rubbo in 2009 in order to support individuals and organisations wishing to further develop literacy, community and the arts. For many, the staff of Readings are its most worthwhile assets – through their personal recommendations and reviews, they share a love of good books to a wide audience. More on Readings here.
Vege Threads make clothes for everyday wear. They care about the world we live in and try and tread lightly, keeping things simple and made local. Their collections are manufactured 100% in Australia using organic and eco-friendly materials and dyes in limited numbers, and they have again gained accreditation from Ethical Clothing Australia. Vege Threads embraces a shift towards slower living and aims to provide customers with long lasting, practical yet beautifully designed garments. More on Vege Threads here.
The survey will run from Friday 15 May until 5PM AEST on Friday 5 June 2020.
Just a little reminder, Assemble Papers is an online and printed publication for small footprint living, covering art, design, architecture, urbanism, the environment and financial affairs. Reflecting an ‘ethicurean*’ approach to life, Assemble Papers stands for optimism. From culture and knowledge through to what we eat and buy, we believe that how we live and what we consume matters. Launched in 2012, we publish work by and about a stellar mix of people; words, ideas and images related to living creatively and collectively. We publish our print publication biannually and distribute it for free around Australia and occasionally the world. Online, we publish new content. We are currently working on our 13th print issue.
Assemble Papers is published by Assemble, a development and management company based in Melbourne, focused on delivering housing where good design, community and sustainability go hand in hand.
